Tweets – Another fine day for February; though today was gray and misty, it was warm (44-50) and fairly birdy.
Red-tailed Hawk One at odd-snag nest west of park entrance
California Gull Two adults
HERRING GULL 3rd-winter bird with GWGU and GWGUxWEGUs
N. Saw-whet Owl Matt heard one very early
Northern Shrike Adult in East Meadow
Tree Swallow 6 over Dog Meadow
Red Crossbill ~30 in mansion firs
American Goldfinch Large flock, 10-20 birds
We’d done pretty well for species count by the time we got to the Rowing Club, though the only woodpecker we’d had was NORTHERN FLICKER. But down near the old boathouse, we suddenly had a RED-BREASTED SAPSUCKER, two male DOWNY WOODPECKERS, and a pair of HAIRY WOODPECKERS. Couldn’t turn up a Pileated though.
So, for the day, 60 species. We averaged 60.25 species/week for February, after averaging 57 in January. Low count for the year: 56 (thrice). 2015 is starting well!
Nothing new for the year except MUSKRAT.
